New Palladians showcases how, at the outset of the 21st century, classical and vernacular traditions are flourishing as a modern phenomena, practiced by a wide spectrum of architectural firms, scholars, students, universities and institutions. The 'New Palladians' are dedicated to the highest standards of craftsmanship and design, and to the very best ecological building and sustainable urbanism. The reference to Palladio is to engage him as a model of professional integrity and building expertise that encompasses the dimensions and dialectics of cities, the countryside and nature. The efficient didactic nature of Palladio's work and its contextual adaptability, has favoured the flourishing of Palladian architecture throughout the world. This book features the latest architectural and urban projects from forty-eight of the most important classical architects in the world today.
